The end of Czechoslovakia by Jiří Musil( )

4 editions published between 1995 and 2000 in English and held by 1,514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The End of Czechoslovakia, scholars and practitioners from both sides of the divide, Czech and Slovak, as well as Western experts, take an in-depth look at the causes of Czechoslovakia's break-up, and seek to explain why a seemingly successful country should disintegrate so quickly after the collapse of the communist regime. Besides exploring the political processes leading to the split, the authors analyse the underlying social, economic and cultural differences between the two nations and examine the historical roots of the problems. Particular attention is paid to changing Czech and Slovak attitudes towards the common state and towards each other, from the heyday of the First Republic to the disillusionment of the post-1989 period. On an international level, important lessons can be drawn from the failure of the Czechoslovak Federation. This multidisciplinary interpretation of the peaceful break-up of a state helps the reader to understand not only the deeper causes of the 'velvet divorce', but the phenomenon of contemporary nationalisms as a whole
The Soros lectures : at the Central European University by George Soros( Book )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 951 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Five lectures George Soros recently delivered at the Central European University in Budapest - which he founded in 1991 - distill a lifetime of thinking on finance, capitalism and open society In a series of lectures delivered at the Central European University in October 2009, George Soros provided a broad overview of his thoughts on economics and politics. The lectures are the culmination of a lifetime of practical and philosophical reflection. In the first and second lecture, Soros discusses his general theory of reflexivity and its application to financial markets, providing insight into the recent financial crisis. The third and fourth lectures examine the concept of open society, which has guided Soros' global philanthropy, as well as the potential for conflict between capitalism and open society. The closing lecture focuses on the way ahead, closely examining the increasingly important economic and political role that China will play in the future. "The Budapest Lectures" presents these five seminal talks into one volume, which offers a condensed and highly readable summary of Soros' world view."--Publisher's description

This volume is a collection of chapters that deal with issues of health, hygiene and eugenics in Southeastern Europe to 1945, specifically, in BosniaHerzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece and Romania. Its major concern is to examine the transfer of medical ideas to society via local, national and international agencies and to show in how far developments in public health, preventive medicine, social hygiene, welfare, gender relations and eugenics followed a regional pattern. This volume provides insights into a region that has to date been marginal to scholarship of the social history of medicine

Freedom and its enemies : the tragedy of liberty by Renáta Uitz( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Contemporary Western constitutional systems promised a liberty-based political and social order. Yet over time, liberty has turned into a self-destructive force. The authors of this volume reflect on the demise of liberty (and with it liberty based constitutional orders) from the perspective of political practice and through the lenses of political theory, law and human rights. The first four chapters of the collection reflect on key problems from the broader perspective of constitutionalism and liberty. The following four chapters address the tension between liberty and dignity, while the last two chapters bring case studies on particularly challenging issues to the discussion"--Back cover

Expulsion and diaspora formation : religious and ethnic identities in flux from antiquity to the seventeenth century by John Victor Tolan( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The eleven essays brought together in this volume explore the relations between expulsion, diaspora, and exile between Late Antiquity and the seventeenth century. The essays range from Hellenistic Egypt to seventeenth-century Hungary and involve expulsion and migration of Jews, Muslims and Protestants. The common goal of these essays is to shed light on a certain number of issues: first, to try to understand the dynamics of expulsion, in particular its social and political causes; second, to examine how expelled communities integrate (or not) into their new host societies; and finally, to understand how the experiences of expulsion and exile are made into founding myths that establish (or attempt to establish) group identities."--Page 4 of cover

Hoards, grave goods, jewellery : objects in hoards and in burial contexts during the Mongol invasion of Central-Eastern Europe by Mária Vargha( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This monograph examines one specific hoard horizon, which is connected to the Mongol invasion of Hungary (1241-42). With this catastrophic event, the historical context is both well-known and much discussed by contemporaries and modern scholars. This opportunity to examine material connected to a sole event, but across a broad spectrum of geographical space and social class, is unique for hoard horizons in Hungary, and, for that matter, in Europe. Though this study focuses on hoards connected to the Mongol invasion, it is also relevant beyond this specific context. The work addresses issues concerning hoard finds and material culture, and examines how finds are related when found in different contexts (a hoard, grave, or settlement feature), thus the questions raised and conclusions reached are important for other medieval hoard finds. By comparing hoards related to a single historical event to a contemporaneous site – containing a village, a church, and a cemetery – assessments can be made regarding how hoards reflect social issues such as stratification, wealth, status, and fashion."--
